Openmoko kernel git branch request for Android patched kernel.

Hi Andy,

If it's easier to just apply patches, there is a patch set located at:

They are split out into each file that gets patched and are the  
differences between the Android 2.6.24 branch and the vanilla 2.6.24  
branch. They were done a little while ago, so I'm not sure if they are  
stale or not.

When I had patched them, there was only one file that wouldn't patch,  
and it was fairly straightforward.

If you have difficulty with it, or have questions, please let me know.
